The article reports that U.S. states have made a great success of scrap tire abatement and recycling programs in the past 20 years. A few states still have major tire piles to clean up, and the down economy makes current prospects for continued funding of state scrap tire programs questionable. The states always have been in charge of establishing and operating their own scrap tire programs-most of them with the aid and advice of the Rubber Manufacturers Association ((RMA).
